M365 Changelog: Microsoft Purview Data Lifecycle Management:Migration of ‘Archive page to new Exchange Admin Center

Rabia Noureen


MC422154 – To simplify the customer experience for managing Exchange account settings and avoiding duplication, Microsoft is removing the ‘Archive’ tab of the Data Lifecycle Management solution in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal. You will continue to be able to perform this operation from the Exchange Admin Center. 

When this will happen:

The ‘Archive’ page will be retired and no longer be available on Microsoft Purview compliance portal from October 2022. 

How this will affect your organization:

Currently, enabling or disabling mailbox archives is an available setting in both the Exchange Admin Center and the Microsoft Purview compliance portal. Once this migration is complete, your organization will no longer be able to access this setting through Data Lifecycle Management. However, the ability to enable and disable archive for each mailbox is already supported in the new Exchange Admin Center under the “Others” tab when managing a mailbox:
